Born in TA 2726 Fréaláf was son of Hild and the nephew of Helm Hammerhand. His mother was Hild, the sister of Helm Hammerhand. He became king after Helm died during the siege of the Glittering Caves in TA 2759.
When Rohan was invaded Fréaláf and many other survivors fled to Dunharrow. It was from the refuge at Dunharrow that King Fréaláf led the daring raid that recaptured Edoras, and managed to reclaim it. During the raid Fréaláf fought Wulf, the usurper and slew him.
Fréaláf and surviving Rohirrim with the aid of the Gondorian forces led by Prince Beregrond eventually drove the Dunlendings back across the rivers Isen and Adorn, and purged the mouths of the Isen and Lefnui of the Corsairs of Umbar
At his coronation the Wizard Saruman suddenly appeared after years of absence. Saruman offered Fréaláf his support and friendship. On Fréaláf's advice, Beren the Steward of Gondor bestowed Saruman the keys to Orthanc, giving him Isengard to dwell in on the condition that he must protect it from another conquest by the Dunlendings.
